Did you try a kickstart install with '%packages --nobase'? This gets you
189 packages (at least in rawhide).
I don't know (and seriously doubt) that you can go any lower without
substantial efforts (if you do, let me know). But if you find obviously
unnecessary dependencies, it's probably a good idea to file a bug. Maybe
you also want to take a look at
